Beautiful Italian restaurant. My server was very kind and knowledgeable about the Gluten Free options. They don’t have a separate menu or any indications of any dishes being GF on the menu so you rely on your server. She suggested I get the GF Taylor Street Baked Ziti and it was delicious! Definitely coming back here when I get the chance.

Wonderful attention to all food allergies! Waitress even modified an appetizer her self and had the chief bring it out to us. I was so well pleased with this fine establishment, we were online looking for more locations closer to home.

This place was great! I was very impressed with the chef who came to the table and asked me what I wanted and then said he could do that gluten free. He also made a gluten free appetizer just for me. The food was great and I had no reactions. I would go back.

The sous chef came out to personally speak with my son about his needs, took his order, and prepared the food himself. The food was amazing!

Host and wait staff super knowledgeable about both celiac disease and being gluten free - all pasta (minus the lasagna and ravioli) can be made gluten free, waiter stated that they the waiter fill out allergen card to alert staff and also told how the cook staff avoids cross contact (changes gloves, changes cookware, etc)

Good gluten free pasta! Pretty much everything can be made gluten free with exceptions to the ravioli and lasagna. Cook staff knows to remove breading croutons etc when shown allergen card marked gluten free. And if you order a pasta dish, you get one to take home at no extra cost!

Open during COVID-19

I ordered a gluten free pasta Mediterranean. It tested positive low gluten on the Nima tester. They sent the πŸ‘¨‍🍳 who was unable to understand why it would test positive. They were nice and made me the plain garden salad as I requested. It was good.

Delicious gluten-free pasta - server made sure to clarify it was for an allergy and had chef come by our table - with lots of different options. Friendly service and good wait times for drinks and food. Love the classic pasta dinner option (take 2nd pasta home)

I had chicken Parmesan (grilled) and pasta. The chef came to see me to discuss options and answered any questions. The place is amazing. And if you order the selected pasta dishes, you get to take another meal home. Amazing! Many choices.

The food is amazing but sadly every time I eat here I have gotten sick. I really love the food so I have tried to give it a few second chances but it keeps happening.

The staff was very aware of gluten free and the pasta I got was very yummy. The reason for only 3 stars is that I was really looking forward to the entree to-go that you get free with an entree but reheated, the pasta was almost inedible.

I have eaten here several times and always had a dedicated knowledgable staff member oversee my order. The food is always very good and I have never had a reaction eating here. I just make a comment about a "gluten allergy" on my open table reservation and they send someone over to discuss accommodations for my celiac as soon as I'm seated.

This restaurant is amazing and the servers are very professional. I had a work meeting here, and my boss asked for the gluten-free menu( I have Celiac) . They had a separate menu, and they cooked everything separate , with no cross contamination. The manager came and talked to me and read the gluten-free menu.. She was very smart and careful. The food was wonderful, and the cream brulee was so yummy. I didn't get sick at all. 🀩

Even if it’s not nessesarily their nitch, These folks get G-Free & Celiac! And rarely are you going to find such care & consideration at such a classy atmosphere Restaraunt as this!

Dress up or casual… we saw the whole spectrum of customers here. Although, dressing up will really make a special night out here. Wonderful old time dinner music hits from the likes of Sinatra filled the low light pleasant & romantic venue. Once advised of our issues, our waitress Sheena (who, by the way, is a 5-Star Rock Star of a Server!) had the Chef at our table side in minutes, advising us on their abilities & limitations. Way more selection than one might anticipate, although less than we had seen at their Orlando location last year.

The gluten free Panne as Alfredo w/Chicken breast added was exquisite in appearance and taste….even as a next day leftover!!!

While I have never gotten sick at Maggianos in the past my pasta has been undercooked, and they do not offer many gluten free options.

We love Maggianos! We eat there for all of our special occasions. The have penne pasta they can mix with almost any sauce. The Creme Brule is very good too. If you tell them you are gluten free the chef will also come out to the table and explain their safety precautions and answer any questions you might have. Definitely recommend.
